    web form - vertical space in ide

    when working on a web form in the vs.net ide, there seems to be a real
    problem with obtaining a large vertical working area.

    you can create controls and drag them past the bottom of the web form's edit
    area, and (very slowly) the area will expand and scroll bars will appear (if
    not present previously) ....

    .... but this is slow and problematic ...

    isn't there some way to specify that you'd like the total available vertical
    area to be 2x or 3x or (etc) the size of the edit "viewport" ?

    John: Go into the Web Form's HTML view and add the following attribute to
    its <form> tag:

    style="height: 800px"

    (You may obviously replace the 800px with your desired height.) When you
    switch back to Design view, you'll have a scrollable viewport of the
    specified height.
